A1000 Drive

The A1000 is the premium AC drive from Yaskawa. It provides great operation reliability, environmental benefits, and energy savings as well as many other user-oriented operational features that make it a first-class choice.

  • Encoderless operation of PM motors with full torque at zero speed
  • Advanced Auto-Tuning functions to adjust automatically motor settings and analyze continuously changes during motor operation to achieve the highest machine performance
  • Advanced energy-saving control technology which improves efficiency and machine productivity in combination with induction and synchronous motor operation
  • Available with special features for a high-speed spindle, positioning, crane and hoist, electronic line shaft

Technical Details

The GL certification proves that the A1000 can be used under very tough conditions, like marine and offshore. Additionally it can be used in temperatures up to 60°C. To highlight our confidence and trust in the YASKAWA A1000 a extended warranty of up to 4 years is granted at no extra cost. The A1000 is the replacement for the highly successful YASKAWA F7 range of inverters and has exceptionally easy set-up (plug and play). The YASKAWA A1000 is available as standard IP20 & IP00 but also as special IP54 ready, IP54 Wall Mount and freely configurable Floor Standing Panel.

Protective Design

A variety of protective designs are available to reinforce the drive against moisture, dust, oil mist, vibration, corrosive sulfur gas, conductive particles, and other harsh environments.

A1000 IP54 Wall Mount
  • A1000 IP54 Ready flange mounted with heat sink on the back bringing heat loss out of the panel for small sized custom panels with high degree of ingress protection
  • A1000 IP54 Wall Mount for decentralized installation
  • A1000 Floor Standing Panels ( 90 – 355 kW) configurable

Safety Features & Communication

  • Functional Safety: A1000 provides Safe Torque Off (STO) in compliance with EN ISO 13849-1, Cat. 3, PLd, IEC/EN61508 SIL2
  • External Device Monitor (EDM) to Observe the STO Function Status
